But there was a difference that players had to adjust for between leagues back then, and you freely admit that it did make a difference. To my knowledge, the rules in the WHA were relatively consistent with the NHL in comparison. How were you "quantifying" the chances in your scenario, if we're allowing the possibility of a "home rules advantage" for the WHA on occasion?

I mean player "poaching" by the Patricks exacerbating the drain of players, during the war years specifically, like the links and provided excerpts partially explain.
